Duterte: Abolish Pasig River agency
MetadataShow full item record
President Duterte yesterday called on Congress to abolish the Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission (PRRC), believing it no longer has a function to perform. “If Congress is listening, abolish it. There is nothing to clean in the Pasig River,” the President said during the oath taking of new appointees at Malacañang. The PRRC is an inter-agency body mandated to ensure that the Pasig River is rehabilitated to its historically pristine condition to make it conducive to transport, recreation and tourism.
